ECO SWIM BY AQUA GREEN X SOCIALFASHIONISTABEAUTY

Posted on: September 9, 2016

Can you believe it’s already September? 

I feel like every year the Summer months just fly by. The Summer baby and lover in me wants to hold onto Summer for as long as I can. Luckily, the weather in New York City is still warm enough that we can still enjoy the summer heat just a little longer while longer….

When it comes to shopping for swim suits, I’m very indecisive and picky. I always have to make sure the fit looks right, and of course I want it to look flattering on me as well. So, when Eco Swim by Aqua Green contacted me to work together, I was excited to collaborate together, but was unsure about receiving a swimsuit without trying it on. But I’m happy I took the plunge to see how they create sustainable, fashionable swimsuits and clothing all at the same time.

I received my cover-up and swimsuit just in time for our trip to Miami. The fit was just right and quite flattering to my body. My body type is fit but curvy.  I’m always overly conscious of my bust area. But, thankfully the fit was just right, and I loved the black polka dot design on the swimsuit. Not only was it cute but stylish and chic all at the same time.  The cover-up was great as well. It can be styled on its own, or paired with these cute shorts (as seen on me) or even a mini skirt. Here, I paired their Jacquard Collar White Cover-Up with some cute black and white patterned  shorts. [I’ll have all the links to each item listed below].  Overall, I’m happy with the fit and style of the swimsuit and cover-up. Even after a few washes the material has still held up and looks brand new. The quality on both the cover up and swimsuit is simply amazing.

What I admire most about Eco Swim is their message and mission behind their brand. I’m all about leading a healthy lifestyle and living in a healthy, safe world and they do all that and more. Eco Swim is a 4th generation family run business, that not only cares about the materials they use but how they are created and produced. They’ve created something that sustainable and fashionable with dual purpose. Consumers are given amazing quality and planet-friendly swimwear that ’s not only better for you but for the entire planet. How can you not LOVE that!Their motto is “reducing your carbon footprint in the sand.” The work they do is truly amazing!

Aside from creating fashionable, sustainable swimwear, Eco Swim strives to help keep beaches and rivers clean. ECO SWIM is committed to several beach and river cleanups each year through retail partnerships.”  [ECO SWIM BY AQUA GREEN] With the help and partnership of many retailers they have removed 6,600 lbs of trash from our oceans and waters and continue to do so.  Their mission and philosophy,

 

“ ECO SWIM is a way of life. It’s the journey of learning to love, respect, and have a sense of responsibility for our planet. It’s about appreciating the past, enjoying the present, and anticipating the future. It’s protecting what is important to you while creating a better world for tomorrow.” 

The more and more I learn and read about this company, I’m happy to have partnered and collaborated with them. I believe in the brand even more, seeing all the good they are doing for our planet, is truly remarkable. Their swimsuits and clothing are designed and created out of recycled nylons and other eco-friendly materials, which are all made in America. Thank you Eco Swim for collaborating and partnering with me on this post. All thoughts are my own.

Get the Look all the Celebrities are Rocking: 3 Ways to Wear a Choker

Posted on: August 19, 2016

 

 

If you haven’t joined the bandwagon, this is the time to do so.  This simple accessory has been around for for awhile, but has evolved over the years. Here’s another fashion trend that can be worn in so many different ways and you can’t go wrong. In the last year, we’ve seen the necklace trend go from extra-long pendents, to big, bold statement pieces and now the opposite end of the spectrum: chokers that encircle tightly around the neck. This could in fact be the next natural step from the skinny scarf look. Which is another way to style this look. Many celebrities like: Kim Kardashian, Kendall Jenner, Gigi Hadid, Taylor Swift have sported the look. EvenBloggers and Vloggers like: Chriselle Lim, Heart Defensor, Jessi Malay and many more have rocked this look. It’s easy to pull off the choker look. It’s easy to see the appeal to this 90’s grunge style. The look is easy, effortless and goes with just about any outfit. It also acts as a built in scarf, an accessory that compliments your look overall. I’ve always loved taking a basic outfit to the next level, just by accessorizing the outfit with jewelry, and other accent details. A look that’s been seen all over and what’s great about this look, it can be worn all year round. One of my favorite styles and one I like to rock on the regular. Can we say, LOVES IT! 

Here are 3 ways you can rock the look:
